What will megacorps do with subsidized health ins?

I am almost 60, and have been retired for 4 years. Megacorp subsidizes health ins for DW and I to the tune of 52%. So far they have been silent on How Obamacare will impact this subsidy. I gave up trying to second-guess them 30 years ago.

Anyone in a similar situation? And what would you expect ex-employer to do?

My guess would be that (assuming that Mega is healthy) they would continue to subsidize for the economic equivalent of today's subsidy so their cost would remain the same. OTOH, they may well use this as an opportunity to reduce their cost and "blame" it on ObamaCare. Just a hunch on my part.

Our company shares cost 80/20 with employees (80% is paid by co) thru BCBS. They have already announced tat the gov will consider our plan as a Cadillac plan and will be taxed in 2017. Already pushing us to consider a high deductible health savings plan (which I know little about).
